Veterans Outreach

Head trauma (or traumatic brain injury) is a common injury in active duty service men and women. Post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) is a seizure disorder caused by a head trauma.  15-34 % of head trauma cases also have PTE and active duty military rates can be as high as 52%. Therefore between 48,000-169,000 service members serving in Iraq & Afghanistan are expected to develop post-traumatic epilepsy.
